How to restake your liquid staked tokens

The first step we need to do is head to the EigenLayer restaking website (you can find it here), and you will find a landing page such as the one on the picture below.

EigenLayer restaking page

The first option, which allows us to create an EigenPod, will not be relevant for this guide. That is because in order to natively restake ETH, you need to operate an Ethereum validating node, and it will not be covered in this article.

Once we connect our wallet, we need to provide one of the listed liquid staked ETH (LST) coins. Again, this is because we want to “stake” our already staked ETH, hence the term, so all the LST coins are already staked earning yield.

Step 1

If we choose as an example Lido’s liquid staked ETH (stETH), we select it from the list and we connect our wallet.

Step 2

Once our wallet is connected, we type the amount we want to restake on the amount box.

Step 3

Finally, now we can click deposit, and a transaction will pop-up on MetaMask or the selected wallet. Once approved, your LST will be restaked.

How to delegate to Imperator

Now that we have our LST tokens restaked, it’s time for us to select an operator to delegate to. We can find the link on the EigenLayer website, on the tab next to “restaking” (you can find it here).

In this site, we’ll be presented with a searcher for Operators available to delegate as the picture below. Again, there are three steps here.

Step 1

To start with, we connect our wallet.

Step 2

Once our wallet is connected, we look for Imperator in the searchbar, either typing Imperator or our operator address. Make sure it matches: 0x6715da39841506010ab25dce14a59d92bf861c22

Step 3

Finally, after making sure we’re on the right operator, we select it and we will enter the lat part. You’ll be able to see the stats of the operator, your available restaked balance will appear. Finally you click deposit and a transaction will pop-up on MetaMask or the selected wallet. Once approved, your LST will be restaked, and you’re good to go!
